Hi Glock! I stopped using deeps last year when I grabbed my first full deep super at chest height.... Now all my deeps are bottom brood chambers and I don't buy any deeps at all, going to all mediums. A deep can hurt you! And you get older every day. I don't wan't 100 deep supers 10 years from now when I'm 66...So who all uses deeps as honey supers? What are the pro and cons .
Last year I used deeps and some frames did not get filled out on the thickness of the frame so I'm going with 9 frames instead of 10 what do you all think?
I would say deeps best asset is economic, especially if you have a lot of hives. I personally am using mediums, but it would have been way cheaper to go all deeps. Less frames to buy, less boxes, etc. I would have went all deeps if it weren't for my wife expressing interest in the bees too. No way she could lift a full deep of honey. Maybe not even a brood deep because they are just bulkier for her.
